Sports entertainment brand Nitro Circus and independent video game developer and publisher, Psyonix, are excited to announce that Rocket League is an official partner of Nitro Circus globally for 2018. Rocket League, the hit sports-action game with a worldwide community of more than 44 million players, is a high-powered hybrid of arcade soccer and driving with rewarding physics-based gameplay.

Spring has sprung which means it’s time to step away from the screen and get outside for some fun! Whether on a BMX bike or a skateboard, staying safe is of the utmost importance when it comes to playing on two wheels or four. Some would say that no one knows more about the importance of safety than Travis Pastrana and the Nitro Circus crew. The rambunctious group of Nitro Circus athletes have seen their fair share of crashes and that’s why they trust Bell Helmets to keep them safe. To encourage you to pursue your dreams safely, Nitro Circus has teamed up with renowned helmet brand Bell to create two youth multisport helmets, two full-face youth bike helmets, and a full-face child’s helmet that are all available to everyone at an accessible price.
“Money shouldn’t dictate whether or not your head is protected.” said Travis Pastrana on Nitro Circus’ partnership with Bell. “We want kids that are fans of action sports to be able to go out, have fun, and hone their skills, but to be safe while doing so. It was important to us to create helmets that are safe yet affordable for everyone”.
World First Frontflip Rock Solid on BMX during the Nitro Circus show in Mildura, Australia! After crashing this trick the previous week and seriously hurting my groin I came back and gave it my best try. Watch the video to see how I went! I also invcluded a bunch of extra content such as the FMX Best Whip contest, Kurtis Down's new world first (Backflip Dead Body on BMX) and much more!
Nitro Circus’ biggest moments, and some of its most notorious crashes, have come from the mind of Travis Pastrana. For the action sports icon, pushing the envelope is just another day at the office. But Pastrana also has the uncanny ability to encourage his fellow riders to go big or go home as well… In some cases despite their better judgment! Now with the 2018 You Got This tour, Travis debuts as executive producer to ramp up the shenanigans with the greatest, craziest, funniest show in Nitro Circus history. Kicking off September 28, 2018 at Montreal’s Centre Bell, Nitro Circus: You Got This will visit U.S. and Canada arenas this fall. Fans can get a jump on the action, though, with tickets on sale starting this Friday, March 9 at nitrocircus.com.
See what my BMX set up looks like for 2018, as well as take a little look through my house and at my local skatepark Caloundra. I ride this bike at the skatepark and at Nitro Circus, I never need to change anything on it. Hope you enjoy the video!
Next year, in 2018, the Nitro Circus will be back on tour in Europe. With shows planned in England, Scotland, Sweden, France, Germany, Switzerland and Belgium it's a big one again. From 20 November till 09 December the Circus will be on the road with of course a bunch of crazy BMX riders. It's a show you actually don't want to miss.
It's a good mix of entertainment, stunts, show and craziness packed in one evening. With the last show being in Antwerp, Belgium, closest to the FATBMX office, we're hoping there will be some riders left to put on a show.
Stay tuned because we'll have some Nitro Circus tickets to give away closer to the events through an online competition on FATBMX. Check the dates in the photo and put your favourite stop on your calendar. The circus is coming to town.
